Subject: Re: Why I didn't chose LISP From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Mon, 27 May 2002 22:16:28 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Johann Höchtl | Last year I thought it would be a good idea to learn a new programming | language. But which one? It looks like you would be happiest with Visual Basic or Delphi. | My first impression was: every language comes with a GUI, not so CLISP. My first impression is that you need to understand that a language is defined by its specification, not by its implementations (and that so-called languages that have only one implementation are not languages to begin with, they are just programming tools). However, I consider you a lost cause from the way your entire apporach is so well documented. | I could continue. Please don't. Thank you for you sharing your sob story. We all care deeply. Goodbye. -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
